Free Cell Phones in Louisiana

Two words explain why so many citizens of the Bayou State qualify for a Lifeline phone, the government’s free cell phone program –- Hurricane Katrina.

The worst natural disaster in the history of the United States destroyed thousands of businesses and three tens of thousands out of work permanently. It’s been five years and the state and its people still haven’t recovered. Some experts say it never will recover despite the best efforts of the state’s good, hard working people.

It’s a situation like this that cries out for a program like Lifeline and we welcome our Louisiana friends to and encourage them to take advantage of the popular, free government cell phones program.

Louisiana residents are in luck: All three of the major Lifeline free cell phone providers do business in Louisiana. Contact any of them to apply for Lifeline phone service, thanks to the government’s Lifeline program (Low Income Program of the Universal Service Fund).
